"Constructive Alps" wants to publicise the thoughtful handling of climate, landscape and building culture. In future, it will be even more necessary to renovate and build with foresight in order to maintain a high quality of life in the Alps. For its fifth edition, therefore, the international architecture prize is looking for smart regional approaches that show the way for Alpine architecture in the coming decade.

In addition to new buildings, this year's call for entries focuses in particular on well-thought-out renovations and projects that stand for energy efficiency or the careful use of resources, for example through upcycling. The social aspect of architecture will be a further component: for example, the quality of densification or the participation of the population.

Architects, planners, master builders and building contractors are invited to submit their projects to this year's call for proposals by 14 March 2020 at
